The movie was entertain enough it would have been better of the conclusion of the Smug storyline end in the previous movie.  It did make me want to watch LotR when I never really wanted again before.

Went again with my friend. HAd no trouble with Allocated seating myself but the usual late comers and bright mobiles.   Oh Yes there was person that kept checking their phone which was distracting.

 

On the third watch I realised that the pink family was the family in the end of the film

The Screening Room:

Saw it again, this time with my mum. When I booked it online about 2 hours before the screening most of the seats were taken. The seats I picked were still great but most place would have been good. I was glad to be able to pre-book my seat online. I HATE that the counter sell food and tickets and now people have to pick seats. Thankfully I can Book EE/Orange Wednesday online now.

Two rows in front of us about 4 people had to move because they were in the wrong seat. I don’t know if it was just a mistake or they did it deliberately. They, moved behind us. Also the couple next to use was in the wrong seat and they movie a few seat to our right.

The steward was at the entrance but all she did was welcome people. When she could have helped she looked like she wanted to help then probably felt awkward and Couldn’t/didn’t assistant.

After the movie we went down a floor for the toilets since they are less busy at the end of film.

 

The Movie

My experience of the movie was more fun this time round (See previous for last time ) . I was more relaxed and I knew what was coming.

I think even if the film was rubbish I would have waited till the end to see the Pre – credit stinger ( BAby Groot).

Last time I didn’t wait for the post credit scene . I had places to go and I could not be bothered but this time I did wait to see it. . Most of the people in the screening also waited till the end. I had heard what was in it so I knew that to expect. I was looking forward to seeing Howard the Duck. Maybe it was me but the credits did not seem to go on and on for this movie.

Watching the second time I followed the movie more in terms of the actual plot and motivations of the villain and the orb. The orb in the film was more of the MacGuffin and Really I think the plot is not important to me. I love a good plot in terms of the structure for the first time  but in terms of rewatch I Don’t care about the mysteries in general.

I think the prison section was the best section for me. Here they all interacted and got to work together for the first time.

I think I love Groot more and more now and Draxx is a solid laugh all the time.

30. X – Men Days of Future Past

Wednesday 11th June 2014 13:20 West India Quay




Yep still good .

I always am amused by the first person Mystique becomes in this film.
 You can so tell (knowing the films) that she is him. Mystique in a high pressure situation when she is transformed and is a “bad actor” I am amused. Mystique get better though. I mean if I was there in that situation I would not know that there person I was speaking was not themselves.

24 Maleficent

Wednesday 28th May 2014 – 10:15 – Screen 3 – The O2



Loved Angelina , even liked Aurora. There were some reviewers going “well the 3 fairies were made for children.” Well they were made to be like the cartoon which was (generally speaking) for children.

This is not Snow White and the Huntsman this is Disney in they way you would imagine that word meant before Marvel and The Princess and the Frog.

The first part was seemed like just set up. This happened then this happened then this. It was like bullet points before the story actually got started.

It’s funny I have been watching so many movies that feel so long that it feels strange that I wanted Maleficent to be longer when I had been so desperate for a shorter film. I wanted more depth and more situations, more Angelina.
I watch OUAT so I was kind use to this kind of take on Fairy Tales so this wasn’t as groundbreaking at it could have been.

Contradicting myself now, the film has darker themes. Basically there is a scene (SPOLIERS) where the main star is violated in her Sleep. She is not Aurora but what I think is the REAL Sleeping Beauty – The tragedy version . This is a Rape Revenge film for children. Men are shit and we don’t need them kind of film.
The criticism with Aurora is that all she does is smile, For some reason I had no problem with that , she was a whole lot more engaging than the cartoon.

Reviews always have a problem with shifts in tone I always love that.
People had a problem with how it looked/CGI. I am the person that would normally hate that. I didn’t have a problem. I didn’t even think about it.

Will go watch it again soon.

On side note my sister (13) watched this and she was bored at the first part of the film.

16 Noah Again

Wednesday 7th May 2014  – 14:15 -O2 – Screen 5



Been suggesting Noah to everyone since I had seen it the first time.

I feared watching it again might be not be as good since it is rather long. It really held up second time round. I think I decided I maybe loved it.


Person I was with seemed to love it.
Jennifer Connelly was brilliant when she pleaded with Noah
Only seen Russell Crowe In A Beautiful Mind , Les Mis and Noah. He was excellent in this film.
This movie has some really powerful images. It has something different this could have been so flat and boring.
This movie is not about the Flood it is about Noah and humanity.
When I watched it the first time it did not drag, It was not that time flew by it just seemed that it had enough time for this epic.
I then saw The Amazing Spider-Man 2 again” See next post.
